Aurora Steps Closer to Allowing Retail Marijuana Delivery

Marijuana delivery is one step closer to reality in Aurora, after the Aurora City Council decided to move forward on a proposal to legalizing the practice.

The proposal, considered during a November 16 study session, would give marijuana delivery licensing priority to Aurora residents who’ve been negatively impacted by the War on Drugs, and would follow some of the marijuana social equity guidelines drafted earlier this year at the Colorado Legislature. But first, the proposed ordinance needs to make it through a vote during the council meeting on December 7.

If approved at that meeting, Aurora could begin allowing marijuana delivery within city limits by January, according to Aurora Marijuana Enforcement Division Manager Robin Peterson.

The legislature passed a bill legalizing marijuana delivery services in 2019, but local governments must opt in before such businesses are allowed within their municipalities.The new state law allowed delivery of medical marijuana only in 2020, and there are no medical dispensaries in Aurora — but recreational delivery is legal statewide in 2021, and there are at least 23 recreational stores in the city.
